In a play there is no arbitrary language; an actor must make the text come alive when speaking. Join beloved actor and master teacher Naomi Jacobson to explore the emotion, power, and action in theatrical text. Learn how Naomi and fellow actors use their unique perception to discover fresh, personal interpretations and bring the language in a script to life. Through lectures, demonstrations, and activities you will get a taste of how different types of language work onstage and how actors mine their character’s language for insight. Whether classical or contemporary, realistic or poetic, the words on the page will hold new meaning once you see them through Naomi’s eyes in this class that will deepen your appreciation for actors and their artistry.

Please note: All class meetings are on Zoom.
